Re: favorite quotes from the dead/or about the dead
I'm really surprised no one mentioned:
"It's pretty clear now that what looked like it might have been some kind of counterculture is, in reality, just the plain old chaos of undifferentiated weirdness."
I can envisage a new world in which society has a way for there to be music, whose function is to get you high, that's the sort of thing we're hammering at.
To get really high is to forget yourself and to forget yourself is to see everything else;
and to see everything else is to become an understanding molecule in evolution, a conscious tool of the universe.
That's why I think it's important to get high.
- Jerry Garcia
My father (anti drug, anti hippie sort of, neutral to the dead, thought garcia was just "some drug addict") always recited, or at least part of, that undifferentiated nothingness quote. :D
